**July Sparklers Check In** — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

**July Sparklers Check In**

I am taking over this check-in for this week, as all of us are sending our T&P to @snegde right now. We are thinking of you and are anxiously awaiting to hear how you are doing. If you are new here, I am sorry for your loss. I hope you find some comfort in the wonderful women on this board. This check in is for anyone who has had an EDD in July.

Hi guys! How is everyone?  Remember you can always post even if you can't respond to everyone else. We understand that sometimes it just isn't feasible. Hugs ladies. @catemitty - So very sorry to see you back. Many ((hugs)) to you.

Re: **July Sparklers Check In**

  • Hi @alysonjill! Thanks for running the check in this week!

    Sending so much love to @snegde!! Hoping you are doing better love!

    I'm doing well this week. Barely worked due to the extreme temps here so life is good lol! We finally escaped the house this afternoon for lunch and a much needed grocery trip! Between the huge snow we got over last week and the weekend and then the bitterly cold temps we have been holed up at home for a long time! Back to school for us tomorrow though! We started planning our spring/summer so looking forward to better weather!

    QOTW this is our official first valentines together so I'm not sure what to expect. I have put together a couple chocolate treats to be paired with wines but other than that he's doing the planning. Remains to be seen what that will entail.

    Big hugs to those who need them! Big hugs @catemitty! I'm so sorry you're back here!

  • Sending T&P to @snedge!!  <3

    I'm on CD20 and still waiting on the big "O".  No measurable follies on CD15, and lining was still thin, so he started me on a clomid/steroid hybrid to hopefully kick start my system!  I am going back in Friday (CD22) to check on my progress!

    I am feeling some slight cramping today, comparable to O-pain, so fx it's coming and I can still get an IUI in this cycle!

  • @alysonjil Thank you for running the check in!
    @snedge Hope you are doing better! (((Hugs)))
    @skategirl128 Hope you are surviving the cold. Did you enjoy your time off?
    @jszy10 FX that you O soon and hopefully your lining improves.

    The RE's at my office said everything looked great on CD 12, my follicle measured at 20mm. I got a positive OPK yesterday and peak on my Clearblue Advanced Digital Monitor.  This is my first cycle using the Clearblue, just usually use opks and temp.  I don't FF will confirm my temp because of have a cold and my temp has been all over the place because of it. My chart has a lot of open circles because I have had trouble sleep the past week.

    QOTW-Not sure what we are going to do.  When we were dating, we didn't do anything because our dating anniversary is February 13th and my birthday is February 8th.

  • @Cheekers2010 - Officially in the 2WW now? Hope you are keeping busy! How are you holding up?

    Yes.  Officially there.  And, I'm a mess.  Certifiable.  I decided on Friday that I should probably wait another cycle (for my mental health).  Only it was TOO LATE to make that decision.  We had already been bd'ing. Now I'm convinced that I'm ku'd (I'm only on CD19) because I'm afraid to be.  Also, my stupid CBEFM has me convinced I'm ku'd because it's read "high" fertility for 10 days now.  So, I'm either ku'd.  I missed my O.  I'm not going to O this month or I haven't O'd yet and this is a long cycle.  Argh!!!!!  I've been posting about this for the last three days so forgive me.  I'm just feeling pretty unstable about the whole thing.

    @snedge I'm thinking of you. (((Hugs)))
    @skategirl128 I'm sorry that the cold has kept you indoors. 
    @jszy10 FX that you O soon.  
    @meladoriestar I saw Atlanta on the news. It's crazy what two inches of snow can do to a city that doesn't usually get snow. I'm sure the same thing would happen if it snowed where I live. 
    @Rocks526 I hope your cold eases up and you feel better. FX that this is your cycle. 
    @Cheekers2010 FX for you. :) 

           My visit with my in-laws was pleasant. We get along well. It was great coming home from work on Friday and Monday and having dinner already cooked. We also enjoyed going to Sequoia National Park. 
          My ovulation app is predicting that I will O at the end of February. I had my MC at the end of November/beginning of December I'm considering TTC at the end of February since I was told to wait about three months. 

    QOTW: My husband and I will be hosting his best friend and his family on Valentine's Day so I may try to get my DH to go somewhere with me the weekend before or after. I was thinking Cambria (California central coast, where we had our honeymoon). We'll see if I can get that together in time.

    need a little help...Dr Google is failing me!

    I went in for my baseline US this am and I have 4 cysts left over form my clomid cycle.  I decided to go unmedicated this cycle anyway, but is this going to hinder my IUI this cycle?  The dr said it shouldn't and the nurse was like "Im sorry you have cysts".  WTF?  Has anyone experienced this?  Do cysts bench you?

  • @HollynLena- I like it better than the wondfo's. I bought the cheaper one, the one that shows you the blinking smiley face for High and non-blinking for Peak. I saw it at Walgreens, although I don't know were to buy the extra stick.  They didn't have them, but maybe they were out of them.

    Sorry to hear about your BFN. FX for you next cycle.

  • Thanks for the check-in @alysonjill.

    So sad to read about everything @snegde is going through and that we have to also welcome back @catemitty.

    I was bummed @holynleana that this wasn't our month. I'm trying to just get through this AF and look ahead to the next chance. I hope the cysts aren't too serious and you can try again right away.

    @cheekers2010 I hope you get the results you want; whichever your heart and head decides to hope for in the end.

    I hate that my doc said it could happen for me pretty quick when it took 6 mos for me to get our BFP last time and another 6 months seems like forever. This month was strike one and I fear the months will keep ticking by with the same end result. I must buy or order a thermometer tomorrow and try to figure out what's going on.

    QOTW: I have no idea if we will do anything but there are some movies coming out on V-Day that I'd like to see.
  • Thanks @snegde! I will work on it!
    @jenwashington I'm so sorry....we will have better luck next month FX!
    @meladoriestar I will work on FF

    Oh! And to answer the question, was my puppy good this week? NO! On Wednesday night, we came home to no water. On Thursday morning, 5 men came out and concluded the main pipe coming into our house was frozen. They really wanted to fix this, bc our house is almost 100 years old AND if they couldn't fix it without drilling, they would heed to drill into a pretty major street and it would affect the phone service for our entire neighborhood. My husband took the morning shift of being at the house with them and I took the afternoon. While I was changing, the puppy swallowed a sock whole, just as the carbon monoxide detectors started going off. I called the vet and she said to induce vomiting. SO- I ran to Walgreens, grabbed the meds, gave it to him and he vomited up a sock and everything else while 5 random men were at our house and we had every door and window open- in Chicago!!! Hysterical story now- but very stressful at the time. I also started crying having to make him sick and the guys were trying to comfort me- it was all kinds of awkward. ;)

    Hahahahhahahahhaha Hahahhahahhahahahahah

  • whew!  Just thought I would update!  Went in for IUI #4 today and was releasing as we spoke, so we have great timing on our side!  DH had 71mil / 45% motil post-wash, which they were also very happy with!

  • @GLB30 - OMG, that does not sound like a fun day. I hope your week got better after that! IS the puppy feeling ok now?
    @snegde - Just so many hugs for you. We should go on a girls trip somewhere while we are still benched! I mean, we need something to look forward to!
    @jszy10 - How was the IUI? Did you end up doing one again today?? Be careful in this snow.
    @skategirl128 - Have you guys thawed out yet? These temps are insane! I'm excited for you to experience your first Valentine's Day together!
    @HollynLeana - So sorry about AF love. I admire your positive attitude! Vegas...I'm jealous!! Whats going on with the cysts?
    @meladoriestar - I hope your RE appt went well. I pray that this move to Chicago also signifies a new start in your TTC journey
    @Rocks526 - officially in the 2WW now?? Hope you are keeping busy.
    @jbiben - Still waiting on AF? We have an Undies Run here too! I gave it thought for a second, but it'll be too cold. You are brave!
    @Cheekers2010 - I hope that you are finding ways to stay calm during this wait. This TTCAL process is scary, but you have a wonderful support system to get you through.
    @HeatherSF11 - What a nice treat to have dinner waiting! Sounds like nice ILs! I hope you can keep busy as you are almost off the bench!
    @catemitty - How are you holding up love? Have you decided on genetic testing?

  • alysonjill -- IUI went well yesterday!  I have barely any cramping at all and was able to enjoy my day pretty normally (which is a nice improvement from my last 2 IUIs).  RE said I was releasing as we spoke, and DH's count was great, so I'm feeling good about it!  I am soooo hoping this cycle works because I am afraid of injects!!

    I also realized yesterday that 12dpo would put me at valentine's day morning, so I am debating on whether or not to test early.  If it was good news, it would just be an awesome valentines day gift....but if its bad news, it might ruin my day :\  so I'm not sure what to do!

    That is great news on how things went yesterday! I'd say for now to not put any expectations on yourself as far as testing. Maybe you can try not to plan if you will or won't test. Instead, reassess how you are feeling a day or so before the 14th and make your decision then. I've realized through this whole journey that putting less expectations on myself allows me to make decisions when the time actually comes rather than fretting for days or weeks.

    Snow day for you, I assume? Enjoy it!

    I have been a very absent Bumpie lately and missed this check-in last week...

    @Eliz77 - Wow, what a nice gift from your parents. I do hope though that you don't end up needing it. Any BW results yet?

    My parents are very generous and supportive. o idea where I would be without them! I should get the BW results today or tomorrow. Will call later on.

    QOTW: We always plan something together, try someplace new. I think we may try this new tapas/wine bar in town. H tends to be an extravagant gift giver and every year I tell him to just take me to dinner, no gifts. Every year he does not listen. 

    @alysonjill Thank you for stepping in and doing this check in! How are you?
    @skategirl128 I hate snow as it is...your situation sounds like torture!
    @jszy10 Hope the IUI is a success!!!
    @meladoriestar Do you have a new RE in Chicago lined up? GL!
    @Rocks526 FX for good timing!
    jbiben Hope AF shows soon and you keep staying cold-free!
    @Cheekers2010 FX for you!!!
    @HeatherSF11 Always nice to have a break from cooking-I love coming home after a long day and it's just done. Rarely ever happens.
    @HollynLeana So sorry about AF ((hugs))
    @catemitty SOOOO sorry you find yourself back here. So many ((HUGS))
    @Rocks526 FX this cycle is it for you!
    @jenwashington Good luck with temping-I was feeling so impatient after my 1st loss and charting really helped me feel like I was taking control. GL!
    @snegde As per usual, so many ((HUGS)) for you. How are you feeling this week?
    @GLB30 Aw, so sorry it was a rough day! Poor puppy, I hope he is feeling better!

    Thanks!!  Yeah, you are right.  I'm sure I'll be going crazy 12 days from now lol.

    Yep, snow day here!  Hope you are staying warm and safe!  I realized I never answered your question about going back today, but luckily I didn't need to (because I don't think I would have made it!).  I think because I was releasing while I was there yesterday, they didn't see it necessary for me to do b2b.
